Hi to all you cloth diaper enthusiasts out there! Welcome to my blog. Feel free to stick around after entering the contest and check out how we live life… with plenty of threads and thriftiness, but without bubble wrap! Back in December I was selected to test Geffen Baby cloth diaper High Absorber inserts. They are a new company wading into the flood of cloth diaper manufacturers to add something different! Of course, I was ecstatic and have been using the inserts weekly since then! Since I mostly have double insert diapers, I most often use them along with single insert AIOs to add extra oomph for naps or excursions outside the house.
From the company: “The High Absorber inserts are made of 2 layers of ultra-absorbent 60% hemp/40% organic cotton, and 3 layers of ultra soft fleece. They were designed for babies 6-12 months old, and we estimate they will absorb 6.5-8 oz of liquid.”
I was asked to prep the inserts 3 times before use, and that they would gain absorbency the more they were used. I’m certain I only prepped them once or twice. I am way too impatient to wait that long! However, I can tell you that I reached for one of these inserts to stick under the layers of my AIO when we took Brennan in for surgery 2 weeks ago! It really absorbed a lot and as it was under microfiber, it was the perfect ‘going the distance’ combo for us! A big bonus is that unlike microfiber, hemp/cotton blends tend to not hold stink, so I will reach for them again and again! Even after all night in the diaper, through the hospital stay and until I washed diapers again, I didn’t have to worry! Use them in place of your regular microfiber diaper insert. Another thing to consider: these are natural inserts, so they can sit next to baby’s skin. I like a natural fiber when baby has redness, and it would be great for say… you want to take a nice shot for a photo contest but don’t want to dirty that particular diaper, since it can sit next to the skin, you have a ‘trap’ for any wayward mess, and you’ll ‘save’ that diaper. Same thing if you want to avoid say a stain on a particular diaper, you could lay the inserts next to baby’s skin and it’s safe, the insert will take the stain hit and protect you diaper. One thing I will note was that with some diapers, I was getting leaks with the regular insert, I still got leaks with this insert as well. If you’ve got a wonky diaper, you’ve got a wonky diaper! It’s an insert, not a miracle cure! Silly me!
